I played with this today:
I took this:
boring office shot

and I wanted to add some drama to it to give it a more “film”-like feel:

Basically it was a mix of cooling the colours down, adding blurred highlights (a mix of Soft Light and Overlay modes) and adding some Curve adjustments… Turned out OK. Nothing spectacular but a good little exercise!

I've always been interested in all kinds of art because I felt the need to express myself in many different ways. I paint, draw, create 3D models, motion graphics & designs of all sorts, play guitar, love photography and whatever else is in between... I was born in Hungary and lived in Hungary, Germany, Australia and the UK for a number of years. I speak German, English and a little Hungarian (I'm working on improving that one again!).
